Borussia Mönchengladbach bosses Marco Rose and Max Eberl have hit out at Michael Cuisance following the midfielder's move to Bayern München.

It has been reported that Cuisance demanded to start regularly at Borussia-Park. Gladbach didn't want to give the 20-year-old any guarantees, though, so he told the club he wanted to leave.

"He will certainly not behave in the same way at his new employer as he did here. That's the point. It's not acceptable here either," Gladbach coach Marco Rose told reporters after Saturday's 0-0 draw with Schalke 04.

"For us, the transfer was inevitable. I got the impression that Borussia had become too small for him," he added.

Gladbach sporting director Max Eberl was surprised that Cuisance chose to join Bayern of all clubs, as he estimates it will be even harder to nail down a starting berth at Allianz Arena.

"I was surprised, because it was all about a young player who demanded to play. I believe Bayern have a great squad. It won't be easier for him to get to play there than it was here," Eberl said and added:

"It was surprising that he expressed this wish before even talking to the new coach once. We tried everything and showed him all the possibilities we had to offer. But if someone doesn't want to keep going, he has to go another way. I have been a sporting director for 10-11 years now, and I have never experienced anything like this before."
